Hi! I'm Aly.
You can consider me your fearless photographer/ professional third wheel/ wacky paparazzi /new friend (if I'm lucky)!
I’m based in the most beautiful of places: Victoria, BC. Originally from Vancouver, I moved to Victoria for university 9 years ago and I've never looked back. When I was finishing up my degree at UVic, a friend of mine from high school asked, "So, when are you going back?" I replied with simply, "Going back?" It didn't even occur to me that people DID that. That's just how great Victoria is!
The friendships and community I’ve built for myself in this quiet corner of the world have shaped me into the person I am today - a fiercely creative and playful gal, with a flare for goofball-ery (that’s a word right?). Don't get me wrong, I am definitely an introvert overall, but when I get behind a camera - BAM! The love of the work takes over and suddenly I'm creative director, stylist, prop master, location coordinator and your No.1 hype woman.
In my free time you’ll most likely find me trying out new restaurants, meeting up with friends at a local brewpub, boxing at my gym, cooking (well not so much cooking as getting the most out of whatever vegetable is decaying in my fridge), petting a dog, or reading a Harry Potter book for the 100th time (the 7th is my favourite).
The following 5 things are what you can expect during a photo session with me:
- A grand ol’ time, filled with laughter, movement, and memorable moments
- Next-level organization skills that will make our shoot a breeze - leaving more room for spontaneous shots and lots of fun
- Sensitivity and a plan of action for any potential preferences and/or insecurities
- A truly frightening number of Dad Jokes
- Me laughing at my own Dad Jokes, when nobody else does

“I’m so grateful for Aly’s professionalism and vision. Our family hadn’t had a photo together in this way in many years and, well we want to remember 2020 in a positive light. It was so stormy during our session. I felt so defeated by the weather and only hoped for one good shot. Aly delivered over 30 great shots. She captured my kids being themselves, my husband and I in love and us all in joy. Thank you Aly.”
